Presented in a question-and-answer format, the book is in two parts. Part one addresses various heart conditions, the symptoms of each, and associated medical tests and treatments. Readers also learn how the heart works physically. Part two focuses on prevention, telling how to assess risk and offering practical advice for stress reduction, dietary changes, and exercise.
